Who was that girl jogging around a large city at night, either on an episode of the television crime drama Law & Order or a distant memory retrieval to nostalgic music on an episode of Cold Case (I think we know how that scene is going to end) or a Hollywood slasher film?

Real danger or not, the thought of women jogging around at night through a major city is frightening.

Do women still jog around the city at night?

Sure they do. Well, at least sometimes.

A girl who loves to jog around the city (hopefully in the daytime) is Zelda who wrestles at the dynamic mixed-wrestling site Alpha Catz.

She smiles, “I tend to run around the city every morning, then stretch and do my Pilates workout. I’m staying lean in my upper body, but my legs and butt are getting bigger from all the running. I love to make you think I’m all harmless and innocent until I lure your vulnerable neck into my legs!”

Whew. Good. We feel better. She runs in the am. Not the pm.

What about you beautiful urban females who have a schedule that dictates that you jog at night or not at all?

The sad and ultimate nightmare is what occurred to a widely admired female jogger in New York City. As reported at news.com.au, “Karina Vetrano, 30, was reported missing by her father when she didn’t return from her regular evening run. Her body was later found in a “weeded area” that her father had told her not to run near, as he didn’t believe it was safe. It appears she was strangled, and her running pants were found pulled halfway down her legs.”

If you are a female who jogs at night, how do you ensure your safety from potential predators?

One strong suggestion is not to listen to music with ear covering at night. You need to be vigilant. Your eyes and ears need to be wide open.

We have a visiting female writer with some other possible life-saving suggestions.

Please listen closely.

Four Excellent Safety Products for Female Runners and Joggers

By Lawanna Bean  |

Are you a female runner or jogger? If so, do you carry a self-defense weapon with you on jogging trails? If your answer is no, why not? It only makes good sense. We have always been told not to jog at night and never jog alone. But what if you work odd hours and don’t have a jogging partner? Or maybe your work situation doesn’t make it possible to job in the daylight hours.

You are at risk when you run alone in dark or poor lighted areas. A female jogger is seen as a prime target for someone who is looking for someone to assault or rape. A runner may be tired or winded and as such may be seen as an easy victim.

Here are a just a few choices that are good options for runners and joggers. Which Safety Product is Good For You?

  1. Pepper Spray Jogger

Pepper spray may not only be used on human attackers, but is also an effective, non-lethal dog repellant.

Features:

  • Perfect for sports and outdoor activities such as running or jogging.
  • It can be carried hands free.
  • Carry it on your key chain.
  • Put it on the belt clip.
  • Use the Velcro strap.
  1. Hot Walker – Walking Weights

Hot Walker Walking Weights are one pound and have 10% Pepper Spray built in. Made specifically for the runner or jogger.

Features:

  • Supportive elastic hand straps.
  • Handy storage compartment for money and keys.
  • Comfortable foam covered hand grips.
  • Clean easily with soap and water.
  1. Runt Stun Gun 4.5 Million Volts

The energy stored in the Runt Stun Gun causes his muscles to work very rapidly, which depletes the blood sugars he or she needs for energy. It also interrupts the neurological impulses that control voluntary muscle movement, which in turn causes loss of balance.

Runt Gun Features:

  • The Runt is a very powerful stun gun.
  • It can easily be concealed.
  • It fits easily in the hand of a woman or man.
  • It can be carried in your hand or pocket.
  • Wear it like a pager.
  • Provides almost invisible protection.
  1. Stun Master Lipstick Stun Gun

This Stun Master Lipstick Stun Gun is not only rechargeable but has a flashlight too! It is a mini stun gun, only 3″ x 3/4″. It is disguised to look like a tube of lipstick. It is very unique and completely portable. It doesn’t matter what purse you are carrying, it will go wherever you go.

Features:

  • There is a built in rechargeable battery.
  • It also Includes an integrated charger.
  • There are two buttons under the cap, one for the stun gun and one for the flashlight.
  • It has a Disable Pin: You wear the wrist strap around your wrist. It plugs into the bottom of the stun gun. As a safety precaution, the disable pin will pull out if the stun gun is taken from you. This will prevent the stun gun from being operational.

These are only four options available today. It really doesn’t matter whether you choose the Pepper Spray Jogger, the Mace Walking Weights, the Runt Stun Gun or the Stun Master Lipstick Stun Gun. The important thing is to protect yourself from harm when you are running or jogging. If you don’t, you are vulnerable and asking for trouble. We all know it’s important to stay physically fit, but we often forget that our personal safety is just as important.
